COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Richer than most amber ales, 90 Shilling is smooth & deeply satisfying, with a crisp, clean Colorado taste. The name comes from the old Scottish method of naming a brewery's beer, based on original gravity and resulting tax rating.

PigMine (27) - San Angelo, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 A fresh, cold 12 oz. bottle, with a date on it. A nice amount of blue smoke upon popping the cap. Pour hard to achieve a decent, short-lived frothy head, bordering creamy that fades fast. It is a burnt orange, copper color, with nice carbonation early on. It is not clear, but not cloudy either. It smells very malty, and a bit metallic. It has little floral or hop aroma. It tastes light to medium bodied, and well carbonated. The malt aroma comes through on the taste, but it is not sweet. It goes down crisp, and easy, with little aftertaste. An easy drinking brew that would pair well with food. For a flagship brew, its less than Id hope for, especially from Odell, but for a good, crisp summer drink it is refreshing. It deserves a decent rating. As a final thought, the tax man can screw off, leave me the hell alone!

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a clear deep copper body that supports a semi weak tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark malt sugars, some brown sugar and molasses as well as thin layers of prune like fruity esters and faint spiciness. The taste starts with malt sweetness leading into sweet caramel malts and a brown sugar note. To midway a mild prune like sweet fruity esters join in and takes this into the finish. For a moment here and there are minerals and spicy hops. Pretty nice.

Martin243 (742) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
330ml bottle served cellar cool in a chalice at home. Clear Amber body, dense white head. Toffee aroma. Earthy caramel flavour, creamy mouthfeel. Felt a little bit decadent to be honest, Punching above its weight.

Bottle to pint glass. Nice malty, sweet, floral aroma. Taste is malt, floral hops, very mild bitterness. Finishes clean. Dig it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedSox2004 (1210) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Clear copper amber with a robust two-finger cream colored head that dissipated slowly to a solid film and left very nice lace. Bready malt aromas with caramel and toffee notes and a hint of yeast. Caramel malt sweetness dominates the flavor profile with a slight earthy hop bitterness. Medium body, minimal carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a lingering malt sweetness in the finish.

Beerenberger (1377) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2014
I get an almost meaty quality in the first whiffs. Earthiness, and suggestions of smoke. A clear deep copper pour with an off-white head and minimal lacing. The taste is malt forward - toasted malts, lightly roasted nuts, smoke, and caramel with a slightly bitter dry finish. Medium-low body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a nicely crafted Scottish Ale. Would drink again.
